It was just a couple of days ago that we wrote the Trusted Traveler Programs enrollment centers across the country, which had been closed since mid-March, were going start reopening on July 6th. That would mean conditionally approved Global Entry, SENTRI and FAST (U.S.-Mexico) applicants would finally be able to complete their in-person interviews at Trusted Traveler Programs enrollment centers in the U.S. and hopefully get their respective status.
So much for that.
Our friend Dev at The World According To Dev contacted me earlier today. She’s been trying to get her Global Entry interview done since January and after a couple of cancellations because of the COVID-related Trusted Traveler Programs enrollment center closings, she finally had an interview set up for July 16th.
So much for that.
Dev got an email today that said her July 16th interview was cancelled because the offices were going to remain closed after all, due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases.
Dev lives in Michigan and was thinking/hoping that maybe it was just the Detroit enrollment centers that were going to remain closed.
So I went to the Dep’t of Home Security’s website and sure enough, all of their offices are closed through at least August 10th:
So they re-closed before they even got the chance to re-open.
Many thanks to Dev for allowing us to share her story!
